Don’t miss Siphiwo Mahala’s hit play The House of Truth at The Theatre on the Square
Siphiwo Mahala’s play The House of Truth will be showing at The Theatre on the Square at Nelson Mandela Square from 31 October.
Directed by Vanessa Cook and starring Sello Maake ka Ncube, The House of Truth premiered at the National Arts Festival in 2016, receiving rave reviews, and had a sold-out season at The Market Theatre – where Deputy President Ramaphosa watched it – and Soweto Theatres this year.
The play is about Daniel Canodoce ‘Can’ Themba (21 June 1924 – 1968), a writer most famous for being the assistant editor of the Drum Magazine in the fifties and for writing ‘The Suit’, originally as a short story. The play gives a considerable amount of detail about him, which is not surprising, because the playwright is currently pursuing doctoral studies on the life and works of Can Themba.
